A piece of heaven

It is so pretty. The black sand and the small beach is worth a visit. I love the scenery and the sea is lovely. The cliffs are interesting. Amanda

The scooter ride to the beach was great and the steep track down to the beach was totally worth it. The black vulcano sand is beautiful and the beach is so peaceful and quiet. Highly recommend.

Black sparkling Sands, crystal clear waters and breath taking views both landward and seaward. A very nice spot for a snorkel. Take sun cream and water.

Access is very difficult through a ravine, and only for fit young people. The beach is small, very touristic and noisy. Beware of many stinging jellyfish in the sea!

We only spent a couple of hours on this beach during our boat excursion, but we absolutely loved it, and if we ever end up on Volcano again, we'd go back to this place. The beach is black volcanic sand, and the setting is quite pretty. The restaurant is a highlight- really great food and service. Strongly recommend!

The best beach I ever visited. Great sea, great place, great surroundings. It is a natural bay surrounded by the vegetation of Vulcano. The beach has full service, cocktails, open restaurant on the sea and disco on the night. But if you are in a group with prepaid services (e.g. full included) take care of the staff since they'll try... More

I guess the review should be split, one for the beach, one for the kiosk on the beach. The beach is one of the most beautiful on the island, offering a pure clear water and many romantic little caves accessible from the main beach. The kiosk is just amazing! Those guys know their job. Their pizza, fire wood oven, is... More
